My name is Ann Kent and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) with a passion for working with foster and adoptive families. As a foster/adoptive mother myself, I can relate to many of the issues my clients bring to me.  I believe that disrupted attachment occurs in the context of relationships, and therefore should be healed in the content of a relationship. For this reason, I encourage strong caregiver involvement in treatment.

I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and find this modality to be extremely effective for children, as well as their parents, who may be experiencing secondary trauma.  I have additional training that allows in-utero/pre-verbal memories to be targeted (Sandra Paulsen’s “When There are No words”).  I am a graduate of the Permanency and Adoption Competently Certificate Program (PACC) offered through the University of Minnesota Center for Advanced Studies in Child Welfare.
